Hey, Tom here.
As part of being transparent, I’m letting you know this blog uses affiliate links. This means when people click an affiliate link to an online product or service and make a purchase, I receive a commission from the sale. I am an independent blogger and the reviews I write are based on my own experience and opinions. A few of these affiliate links include SiteGround, Cloudways, Kinsta, WP Rocket, Perfmatters, StudioPress, StackPath, and MyThemeShop.
This is my main source of income and helps me continue writing free tutorials on WordPress speed optimization, SEO, and similar topics. I even have a guide on affiliate marketing because it changed my life completely, going from completely broke to making well over what I ever thought was possible.
I have also pledged to donate a good chunk of my affiliate income to charities via GoFundMe campaigns. Previous donations included $3,000 to American Red Cross at Hurricane Harvey, $3,000 to feed hungry people in Denver, and $3,000 to my parents. There is no way I’m going to give back after you guys are believe in me and my tutorials.
Rarely, if ever, do I accept solicited affiliate opportunities. That’s because I am already adamant about trying new products and services, and writing reviews based on my own, unbiased opinion.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
